Never mind a death toll of 1,800 people, this Israeli blogger is really worried that the war in Gaza is adding a few inches to her waistline.

After publishing and subsequently withdrawing a blog post titled "When genocide is permissible" last week, the Times of Israel is at it again - hosting an article titled "Does this war make me look fat".

Blogger Rachel Weinstein argues: “Try as I may, I cannot stop rockets with M&M’s. Hershey’s syrup doesn’t stop the sound of booms, Cocoa Pebbles don’t stop sirens, and chocolate, glory be thy name, doesn’t stop war..."

She goes on to write: "Don't get me wrong, I KNOW how ridiculous this sounds."

However, just for the avoidance of doubt:

The Times of Israel states: "The opinions, facts and any media content [in blogs] are presented solely by the author, and The Times of Israel assumes no responsibility for them."
